Nebraska Rotarians Offer Their Help to the Community


November 2, 2018

Do you see needs in Sidney that aren’t being met? Would you like to see the city become even better? Rotarians want to help.

Representatives of Rotary District 5630, which covers western Nebraska, will host an informational meeting 6:30 to 8 p.m. Monday, Nov. 5, at Buffalo Point Steakhouse, 638 Cabela Drive. The purpose of the meeting will be to discover the goals and passions of local residents and to offer Rotary’s extensive resources to help meet those goals.

“This meeting will not focus on Rotary specifically, but avenues of service in Sidney and Cheyenne County. Rotarians from the active clubs in Alliance, Chadron, Chappell, and Kimball have been invited to attend and share their communities’ vision of Rotary as well,” said District 5630 Membership Chairman and Past District Governor Dian Edwards.

Edwards will be chairing the Nov. 5 meeting.

Nebraska Rotarians share in Sidney’s desire to create opportunities for service while maintaining its small-town values. Rotarians are motivated by their motto of “Service above Self” and guided in their decisions by their 4-Way Test: “Is it the truth? Is it fair to all concerned? Will it build good will and better friendships? Is it beneficial to all concerned?”

“We want to find out the best ways to serve Sidney. We want to learn how we can help you reach your goals – particularly for your youth. We believe young people want to be engaged in the community, and we have the resources to provide them with leadership training and foreign exchange opportunities while channeling their energies toward community service,” Edwards said.

Drinks and hors d’oeuvres will be served at the meeting. There is no cost to attend. For more information about the meeting or about Rotary, call Dian Edwards at 402-340-6166 or email [email protected]

Sidney had a charter club until last year when it surrendered its charter, Edwards said. She added Sidney and Cheyenne County has a history of supporting its youth. However, Rotary needs to hear from local residents to determine what is needed in the Cheyenne County community.
